Our Island, Our Future

Stèisean Connaidh Chrosabol – Crossapol Filling Station

Stèisean Connaidh Chrosabol is owned and operated by Tiree Community Development Trust, under one of our trading subsidiaries, Tiree Community Enterprise Ltd. The filling station is self service via card payments for standard unleaded and road diesel fuel, and also has an agricultural diesel pump (supervised by the neighbouring shop, Bùth a’ Bhaile), and an electric vehicle rapid charging point. Water and air refill are also available.

EXPECTED OPENING DATE:

The Filling station is nearing completion, but there continue to be issues that delay the contractors – these include a delay in Openreach carrying out works to pre-existing equipment on the site that needed to be moved, and delays in us being able to have an electricity meter installed (partially related to current energy market disruptions). We are currently hoping to be operational by mid May.

Cash payments can be made via the shop when it is open, otherwise payment is via card or contactless payment at the pump.

The station is generally self-service only. For customers who are physically unable to operate the pumps only, assistance can be requested from the Trust office across the road, during the hours of operation.

Please note: Staff in the shop are not responsible for the filling station, other than taking cash payments on our behalf and authorising the activation of pumps for this purpose, and for red diesel transactions. They are not authorised, or insured, to assist customers on the forecourt, please do not ask them to do this. Any issues with the pumps or other station functions should be reported to the Trust office.

In the event of any spillage, accidents or damage to equipment, please use the emergency phone which is on-site to immediately notify us.

If calling via a mobile, please do not do so while parked or standing within 5 meters of the pumps, as mobile phones use can create a fire hazard in the immediate vicinity of petroleum vapour.

Absolutely no smoking or naked flames anywhere within the filling station forecourt.

If you wish to purchase agricultural (“red”) diesel, you must visit when the shop is open, as they need to confirm your vehicle is appropriate and authorise the pump. Only legally authorised vehicles may use this pump – changes have recently been made to eligibility effective from April 1st 2022 – see here for details
